Sustainable Campus Research and Community Engagement Award

The Bemidji State University Environmental Advisory Committee accepts and reviews applications for up to $800 through the Sustainable Campus Research and Community Engagement Award.

In 2005, the BSU Sustainable Campus Endowment was established to promote projects by undergraduate and graduate students to improve the environmental responsibility of the campus community and beyond.

As part of an ongoing partnership to promote energy conservation and renewable energy, Otter Tail Power Company made a major contribution to support student projects. An award up to $800 will be awarded annually to returning BSU undergraduate or graduate student(s). These awards will be based on contributions to the campus and/or broader community through research and/or civic engagement related to sustainability.

The goal of this award is to promote academic and personal excellence in the area of sustainability as it pertains to the environment, our campus and our community.  This award is seen as one of the many vehicles by which students may continue their academic and professional pursuits with increased awareness of the environment and the role of its citizens in helping to preserve it for generations to come.

Award checks will be distributed at the start of fall semester.  The amount of the award(s) will be up to $800.

Stay tuned for application information.

We're sorry, but the applications are closed for this year. They will re-open again in the Spring of next year.
